    New computer, does this seem decent?

    Hello everyone.

    I've put together parts for a computer which the company I'm buying from will build for me.
    Do you think this pc will run games like BF 3, GTA 4 on ultra? If so, what kind of fps can I expect?

    Silver Power SP-SS500 500W PSU
    MSI B75MA-P45, Socket-1155
    Intel® Core i5-3570K Processor Quad Core, 3.4Ghz, 6MB, Boxed w/fa
    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9
    Gainward GeForce GTX 660Ti 2GB PhysX
    Intel® SSD 330 Series 120GB
    Seagate Barracuda® 1TB
    Windows 7 64 bit

    I've also heard that 500W may be too weak, but I'm not going to use SLI or upgrade any of these parts. So is 500W enough for this build?


    Thank you for your time.

    The minimum for 660 Ti is 450W, but I would recommend going like 700W, to be able to OC and SLI... Good luck

    500W is enough but not that 500W PSU.
    Get something preferably from Seasonic or Corsair. And don't listen to the above poster.

    get a z77 board if your going to spend the money on a i53570k theres no reason to not get a z77 board unless your on some tight budget. Asrock Extreme 4 , Even a z77 pro 3 if you are on a tighter budget. Get a WD Cav black HDD more reliable, performance tuned and overall better. Crucial M4 or Samsung 830 128Gb for the SSD, Get a better psu, if your going to stick in the 500 (cheaper) range get something like a 520 watt Seasonic it will power everything just fine. You will be able to run games fine but at high resolutions the 660 ti still isnt the best card for BF3 on max settings with all the eye candy you will still more than likely hit sub 60fps at times.

    Ok, thanks for your input. I live in Norway and this computer will already cost me $1600. I've been trying to get it as cheap as possible but still with i5 and 660ti. But I can probably get a better psu. There are a limited amount of boards I can choose from, so if I want something better it's at least $160 more, which I don't want to spend unless it's absolutely necessary. So is it really?

    I just wouldnt put my money on a board that doesnt have a review on amazon, newegg, or tiger direct stopped looking after those 3, its also a micro atx board so youll need to make sure your case supports a micro atx setup if you are reusing. Most case do but Ive come across some that dont. I just dont know if you are trying to reuse an old dell case or something. Maybe if you listed an outlet you are using to buy the parts and how much you can spend we can recommend you something better.

    Ok. I'm not reusing anything. I chose Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus Midi Tower.
    So far it costs me $1600, and I don't want to spend more. So you can recommend me better parts but in the same price range of the parts I've already chosen .
